I use the Field Guide to Wildflowers of NE and North central North America, by Roger Tory Peterson and Margaret McKenny.  It is arranged by color and shape instead of family, so it is good for a beginner.
	Another good one is Field Guide to Wildflowers and Weeds, by James H. Zimmerman and Booth Courtenay.
	Both aren't totally comprehensive, but what plants you'll find as a beginner are sure to be in them.
